Going for my first shot - not the 4 uploads, though, because my doctor is concerned with my having a reaction to everything else I've taken.
Not looking forward to this regiment.

Good luck. Hope it goes well. Fingers crossed for no reaction.

oldcrohnie, good luck!  I have reactions to pretty much everything but am fine with Humira (and Cimzia), so hopefully you will be too.  Just small injection site whelps that are better if you premedicate with bendryl and zantac for a few days before the injection.

Thanks - went OK - little light-headed and slight drop in BP, but that could be from the stress, It hurt so bad, I don't know how people give themselves these injections. I will go back in 2 weeks for another. Has anyone had serious side effects after just a few?
